CPM, a record boarding again at the Port of Monfalcone

MONFALCONE - Another record boarding for the Compagnia Portuale at the Port of Monfalcone, from which a ship bound for the USA has sailed today. This time, it has concerned 5 pleasure boats, including a super-yacht of 40 meters and 150 tons, all heading towards Florida and in particular to Port Everglades (Miami).

The boarding operations, which lasted three days, were smoothly carried out  thanks to the experience and professionalism of the workers within CPM. In fact, it was a series of particularly delicate operations, including the passage of the 40-meter super-yacht between the two on-board cranes that were less than 40 meters apart. All this after the same had been lifted from the sea before carrying out the stowage in its final position for the ocean crossing. Two other yachts, 20 and 21 meters and weighing 46 and 48 tons respectively, an 18-meter catamaran with a hoisted mast and a last 26-meter and 71-ton yacht found their way onto the same ship to Florida.
Recent investments in equipment, more generally in the vehicle fleet and an intermodal terminal of 40,000 square meters (with 10 railway tracks) at the entrance to the Portorosega port, confirm CPM (TO Delta Group company) as a reference point on the territory as far as it concerns the project cargo and the handling of the goods in conventional way through all the modes of transport. "But it is above all the professionalism and experience of our staff that set us apart" explains the managing director of Compagnia Portuale, Giancarlo Russo. An even more important feature today, at a time when the integration between the ports of Trieste and Monfalcone is nearing completion. The Management Committee of the Port Network Authority of the Eastern Adriatic Sea, in fact, has recently approved the acquisition of the Special Agency for the Port of Monfalcone.
The inclusion process will be completed in the coming weeks and the assets and areas will be acquired by the State property managed by the Authority. The operation will unify the legal management of the areas through state-owned concessions. In this way, private investments with a direct benefit on the development of port traffic will be favored.
